Blowfish Birthday

Standard

I had a great time working on this fun birthday card.  My daughter fell in love with this stamp from Art Impressions and insisted we give it a try.  The image is so dynamic and the colors so vibrant that simple punched circles masquerading as bubbles seemed like the perfect background with just a pop of orange border.

Ohmygoodness! Ohmygoodness! I have been waiting over a week to post this card so the birthday girl wouldn’t see it before she received it.  I totally fell head over heels for this set “Fetching Friendship”, a new release from Newton’s Nook Designs. This adorable doggy was perfect to make a card for an aunt who has had some lovable canine furbabies through the years.

Happy Independence Day!

Here in Maryland, crabs go with the 4th of July like…well like fireworks, so you can imagine how gleeful I was to come across this sweet little 4th of July Crab digistamp by Heidi Arrowood of  2CuteInk that I used to put together this card celebrating America’s birthday. I instantly fell in love with this crustacean (and a whole bunch of other ridiculously adorable images in the 2CuteInk Etsy shop!)

Here’s wishing all of my American friends a happy and safe 4th of July!

A little birdie told me that her family is growing and I am tickled pink (or blue!) for all of them.  I’m sworn to secrecy for now, but that couldn’t stop me from creating a special card in anticipation of the blessed arrival.  In fact, I created two- one pink, one blue

There are lots of great stamps available, but this Happy Hoppers stamp from Stampendous popped right into my head.  Bunny Luv is a very simple image, but it projects such emotion.  Can’t you just feel the love?  I put together a very clean layout to keep all the attention on the wonderful bunnies.

I was so excited to receive my order from Verve Stamps this week and although I didn’t have a specific project in mind, I just couldn’t wait to use them!  These stamps have such a simplicity to them, so I wanted to keep the layout super clean, but keep the card interesting.  It all fell together with a small print all over background and simple shapes.

Birthday Cupcakes

Standard

June was a busy month for card making!  I put together this card a week or so ago, but couldn’t fit it in for posting.  Since the occasions have slowed down a bit, I finally get to share it.  This card was noteworthy for me for a couple reasons: this was the first time I’ve paired a partial fussy cut with a die cut and I’m pretty sure this is the most Copic colors I’ve ever used on a single project.  I love this stamp from CC Designs and had a lot of fun with this card.
